Kiara Advani gets candid with Neha Dhupia on JioSaavn No Filter Neha Season 5


Kiara Advani who is all set to charm us with her upcoming Bollywood film 'Laxmmi Bomb' along with Akshay Kumar, recently opened up on No Filter Neha Season 5. Here's what the diva talked about.
Kiara on being a Home-bird
Haan kabhi kabhi it feels like that ki bahot ho gaya ab nikal na hai ghar se, but I feel this time has also given me the leeway to do things that I wasn't able to do. Let's be honest we have to be on this particular healthy eating diet and when I was shooting last year, I barely had the time to go to the gym, so I had to be on a diet. I have used these 4-5 months whatever it's been and eaten everything. So, I have gone for it, the pizzas, the burgers, I have indulged with my family and I think, it's been, It's really been a blessing.
Kiara on being blessed with healthy metabolism and her weird food combinations!
I am blessed with putting on and losing equally fast. So, I know, I can go back to my old weight. My dinner is still Bhindi, Kaddu and Salmon. It's not like I do it to be fit, I genuinely like it and I genuinely enjoy it like I love home food, I love sabzis. From all the proteins, my favorite is fish, when you come to think, I think it's a very odd mix I don't think anybody eats bhindi which Salmon, even my Mum be like what is this meal you're eating. I'm gonna invite you for dinner and you must try it with me, I can guarantee you that you will not like it, it's an acquired taste which I have acquired and I love.
Kiara on Hanger management
So, my only vice in life is this that I have this thing where if I have planned to eat at a particular time, or if I want to eat a particular thing and its very simple things, if Ican't get it something else happens. My dad always tells me, please carry a box of nuts or something because you need to keep munching on something because, it's probably because your BP drops and you don't know who you become but we don't like this version and my mom is like, your true colors comes out when you haven't eaten and she's like a person will know your colors if you show them only when you haven't eaten
Kiara's worst Hanger story ever!
It's really split personality, I have this other side, I should actually start naming her in fact. I think the worst has only been seen by my team because it always happens at lunch break on set when it'slike 1:30 say its 2 O'clock and I eat at 12 and they are doing lighting set up, I will run, even if its 10 minutes I will eat in those 10 minutes and come back.
But that's like my time I start getting hungry for lunch. And I think my team has seen like they leave me, they don't even come when they see her coming out, one by one they all start sneaking out of the van and when they come back, I'm back to normal.
So, it's a very strange thing. I haven't thought of a name yet, she just comes in. This is such a fab Laxmmi Bomb promotion, maybe I should call her Laxmmi Bomb.
Kiara talks about #ChillCoronawithKi
I think, you know the minute you know someone else is going through the same feeling as you are, there is certain togetherness and you feel you know what we'll get out of it together. I mean it was really simple, I mean it was that and it was amazing because so many people reached out and if you have the time and you ifyou read the comments on that post, it's beautiful. So many people have given their own advice, in fact there were so many mothers who didn't know what to do with their babies how to entertain them and keep them busy and stuff, so it was a nice fun thing to do and it was nice to know that you're not alone in it, everybody has their own battle that they are fighting at this point and a lot of us are going through the same thing so we can share our experiences and come out of it stronger together.
Kiara on spending time with her parents
I feel for them it's more exciting because it's like 'oh we have our kids to ourselves now'. I think it's nice when we all sit down for meals together and that's something Ireally missed, I missed having breakfast, lunch and dinner, like my dad and I, we always made it a point to eat breakfast together, that's like our time.
My brother wakes up a little later, but my father and I will sit together and we will have a conversation about every single thing that is happening in the world and I missed that because so many days because of all our all odd shoot timing, waking up at 5 and going on sets so that was nice, that came back.
My mother has become a top chef, I didn't know my mother could cook like this because we don't have anybody at home to cook so she took upon herself.
She has managed to make me Bhindi, Kaddu, everything and she can YouTube anything and be a master chef.
Kiara on her mom being the next level fan!
She is like next level fan. It has been 5-6 years and I'm still saying, Mumma stop, stop forwarding all of my promos to every single contact on your list. There was a time, her school page on Facebook, she runs a school, I had to tell her and this is the time when she just understood Facebook, I had to tell her that this is the school page not your personal page you cannot be putting up your daughter's movies things on your school page, these parents are not gonna be looking at that. And she's just like oh shuks because she was all new to the world of Social media. But she reads everything, she gets so excited, she is the mom who will watch Miss Dhinchakand get excited to see me, even if there's a rumor, and even if she knows it's not true, she'll be like my daughter came on TV today. She is that mother, she just loves it, she just loves to see me and then she'll always have a comment, she'll be like, 'You know I wish you did this to your hair,supposing she's is taking a video of me, and I'm like just take the video, don't direct me. She's really cute, I get annoyed when it happens but after that it makes for a great story. I miss her directions, I miss her enthusiasm behind the camera, she's seen my journey, she sees me practice, she sees me work hard and I think she just feels proud at the end of the day and that's all that matters.
Kiara on sneaking in bhindis in restaurants
It doesn't work in South Mumbai, only works in Bandra because South Mumbai treats you normally, Bandra gives you that feeling 'ki ha koi aya he' because all the celebrities are around, so Bandra allows me to sneak in bhindi at a fancy restaurant while everyone around is eating their gourmet food and I am having my gourmet homemade bhindi.
What Kiara did to look innocent in a security situation!
The sun glass story, I was in Kashmir for an ad shoot. It's the most beautiful place that I have ever seen, but of coursebecause of the security issues, there is a lot of security everywhere you look right and for somebody from Mumbai or any other place in this country, it's a new experience. It did intimidate us first, we were passing a CRPF they were all looking at you because that's their job and I was like - am I looking innocent, and I put my sunglasses down. It was really stupid, and they were cat eyed sunglasses. So my makeup artist looks at me and she's like 'Now you're looking like you're a problem, you better take those off'. So I was like oh shit. I think it's just fun to be silly sometimes. It's like let the child in you have fun and I think that's what who I am. I am a bit no filter most of the time but it's also with the people I am most comfortable with.
Kiara's biggest phobia
I have major bird phobia. I don't know what it isbut I have major bird phobia. I'll start crying. I could never do that Masakali song that Sonam Kapoor did. If anybody told me this is what I have to do in a movie, I would leave the film. I would totally leave the film.
